Menopause

I am 44 years old, I had a pregnancy last year but unfortunately miscarried at around 6 weeks. Shortly after this I had a blood test and an internal scan and was informed I am in the menopause, I would still like to have another child but need to know what options I have if any so I can talk to my partner before moving forward.

You may still conceive naturally but at your age and if you are menopausal the chances are reduced.  At 44 IVF using your own eggs is not recommended but treatment with donor eggs is an option.
